a meander through EPHESUS, TURKEY || travel photographer

it was a crisp yet sunny november day. i remember it well. there was much anticipation as we drove from kusadasi to ephesus with our tourguide. i was going to be walking through the streets that i had read about in the bible. SURREAL.

when we got there i was awestruck; here lay before me the remnants of what was. and it was beautiful and i could FEEL that truly it was a sacred place.

as i walked and took photos, as this was why i was there - i was on assignment with Lonely Planet - i couldn’t  help but catch my breathe at times and lower my camera, and take mental memories photos of this place, that will forever be embeded my mind’s cache.

 ephesus..i cannot wait to see you again.

THIS FALL, SEPTEMBER 22-29, 2013, I WILL BE LEADING A HISTORICAL TOUR THROUGH TURKEY - ST PAULS JOURNEY AND THE 7 CHURCHES. MORE INFORMATION AT FOLLOW YOUR HEART TOURS SITE.

Amazing photos Tracey! Looks like Ephesus was as crowded for you as it was when we were there. We didn't see the "vendors" in the streets - nice addition to all the photos of this truly amazing place! Thanks for sharing!
